But we have a few events coming up that I want you to think about, and I hope, look forward to. By taking part in them, you can change the world.
One is Caps For Kids. That's not the official name, but we'll call it that for now. On Wednesday, October 21st, we're asking all LWS students to wear a cap to school and make a donation for the privilege of doing so. The money is then donated to purchase hats for kids with cancer. The minimum donation is one dollar, but you can give more.
Just recently, I have made friends with a young woman who has leukemia--a kind of blood cancer--so when our Becki suggested participating in this day as part of her student council speech, it really touched my heart. My friend Sarah still has her hair, but she's met lots of kids--some your age, who have lost theirs because of the medicines they are taking to fight their cancer. I'll be wearing a cap that day, and I'll make a donation. I hope you decide to too.

Some time in October, I'm still working on the date, we will be walking to the Elder Day Center here in Batavia. I'm very excited for you to see how the clients spend their days there, and for each of you to share your time with some very special people. They look forward to our visits very much. Being a friend to someone, can change the world! (We will need parent chaperones!)
And since I'm just feeling so good about all the good you can do, I will tell you that we are going to Feed My Starving Children in May. It seems like a long time away, but ask your parents to save the date: May 7th, because we'll need lots of chaperones for that special trip where you will help feed kids in need!
How cool is this life we have, eh?
